about

Substantial & Marcus D, together known as Bop Alloy, return with their signature jazz induced sound and a clever new single entitled 'Count On Us' from their upcoming sophomore LP, 'Another Day in the Life of...' out this Spring. Featuring sparse, yet perfectly placed vocals from Steph, The Sapphic Songstress, COU showcases the duo's sonic growth with Marcus tickling the ivory to perfection over his sophisticated brand of boom-bap. (Think jacket and tie with fresh sneaks.) Substantial masterfully chronicles BA's humble beginnings, the morning after a show, while simultaneously counting from 1 to 40. This is the type of creative Hip Hop storytelling the repeat button was made for.

On February 4, 2014, Bop Alloy launched their Kickstarter campaign to raise money for their new album ‘Another Day In The Life of…’. With a goal of $7000 and a funding period of 20 days, Bop Alloy hit the ground running and took to Twitter, Facebook & Instagram to promote their campaign. The duo achieved their goal in one week! Pledge incentives included digital downloads, t-shirts, posters, autograph copies of their CD and even an offer to perform at your wedding. With 13 days remaining, Bop Alloy provided stretch goal incentives for their fans. With $10,000 raised, fans can aide Bop Alloy with a Holiday album scheduled for release Winter 2014. If $15,000 is raised, they will record and film a live album and all contributors will be given free admission into the event. Six days later they reached their 1st stretch goal. “The support's overwhelming. $10,000 without even a preview of any new music is a testament to the kind of fans we have, and the type of listeners we attract said Marcus D.

Track Name: Count On Us ft. Steph, The Sapphic Songstress
No surprise I’m the one they sleep on, I roll with dreamers
But when us two come thru we make’em believers
Fiendin’ thru your receivers when it’s all 3 of us
For the love of the music, high 5 for Jesus
In a Motel 6, wake up call at 7
Breakfast we ate later had these players in heaven
By 9:10, I’m in a cab to the airport
Boarding’s at 11, I’m not stressing so therefore
It’s time to finish up this rhyme I’m 12 bars into
Hold up... 13 now yeah this shit’s cool.
Came up since 14 with a hissing ass demo
15 minutes strong though the songs were hella simple
Finish that 16 then I crashed like a cymbal
Sounding 17 again, I’m gon’ bodied that instrumental
Night before, packed house. It was 18 an over
Still would’ve been killed if only nine teens showed up
We focused, in 2021 we may have more for you
But still be underrated they say that’s a catch 22
We wanna be... rated the greatest like #23
But since our thinking’s too forward that’s something we might never see
25 mins before I board for my trip
Hit my driver with $20 + a $6 tip
Thinkin’ that I was 27 when I heard Marcus shit
28 when we began to plan the very start of it
Dark skin chick tapped me saying , “I don’t know what’s on your mind.
You’re holdin‘ up the line, by the way your gate is 29"
“Purdy” lil’ 30 something sista from the motherland
Thanked her for the info, passed the checkpoint with my stuff in hand
Copped gum, snacks and a book for something to do
Cashier said my total’s $31.32
Phone at 33%, my battery is lame
Charged it and called my family ‘fore I boarded the plane
34 years young, making music with my friends
Documented through a 35 millimeter lens
Day and a half before, yo that’s when we hit the road
Only 37 copies of our album in tow.
One show they all go ‘cause they’re a hot commodity
Imports plus shipping be like $38 a copy, B
Finally boarded, near a guy who’s 39 or 40
By the time we’re in the sky I closed my eyes and started zoning...


HOOK
Just another day in this life of ours, homes

Seems like we the ones that you can count on
Feels right the moment they put the sound on
Count on us to hold it down from now on

REPEAT HOOK

Drop on the 1
Clap on 2
Nod on the 3
This is 4 you
Drop on the 1
Clap on 2
Nod on the 3
This is 4 you
This is 4 you!!!
